Brexit What Next?

Brexit – What Next?

Posted on: 12th September 2019

I’ve held a series of well-attended public meetings to help inform local people on Brexit. The next is on 27th September at Penwith College. There’ll be a cross-party panel and representatives from law, commerce and transport. (Of course I’ve always invited the local Conservative MP to join the debate, but he’s always refused. Just as […]

Badger cull continues to fail

Posted on: 9th September 2019

The Government’s badger cull was politically motivated, not based on sound science. Seven years on and after the culling of 40,000 badgers that reality remains. I opposed the cull then warning that culling badgers would risk making the problem of bovine TB worse. I helped set up the first community-led Badger vaccination project in West […]

Cummings gets his comuppence

Posted on: 3rd September 2019

Boris Johnson today skewered himself on the sword of his own bluster and misjudgment. Meanwhile the real Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, has seen his devious strategy of threats and dictatorial rule catastrophically fail. Johnson complains that Parliament is stopping him from negotiating a Brexit deal with the EU. But he’s made no effort to commence […]

Conservatives saw fishing as “expendable” in 1972. They still do.

Posted on: 23rd August 2019

The Conservatives secretly described the fishing industry as “expendable” in 1972, when negotiating access to the European Union. Many believe they still take the fishing industry for granted. Liberal Democrat MEPs Caroline Voaden (SW) and Cornish woman Lucy Nethsingha (MEP for East of England) accompanied, local Parliamentary candidate and former MP, Andrew George, on a […]

“No ifs. No buts”: Brexit won’t happen

Posted on: 20th August 2019

Irish PM Leo Varadkar has made clear to his EU colleagues that it is not worth reopening Brexit negotiations with the UK. He’s right. PM Johnson is merely engaged in synthetic media posturing for his right-wing supporters not in a serious attempt at renegotiation. Leaders of other countries are laughing behind their hands, while attempting […]

It’s about WHAT a Government of unity does, not about WHO leads it

Posted on: 16th August 2019

Our primary objective should be to combat this Dominic Cummings Government, the advance of the right and Johnson’s “promise-anything” cavalier attitude to truth and integrity. If a sensible moderate majority of MPs can come together to head off the irresponsible catastrophe our country is destined for – if Cummings/Johnson are left to carry on as […]

Cornwall should welcome NHS announcement – even if it’s from Johnson’s magic money-lending tree!

Posted on: 5th August 2019

Today’s hospital funding announcement confirms imminent General Election The Johnson Government is making an extra £850 million available for future capital spending on NHS hospitals. This includes nearly £100 million for the long awaited and long promised rebuilding of the seriously deficient Princess Alexandra Maternity wing at Treliske, Truro. Facilities in the wing have become […]

Cornwall deserves a fair share from Johnson’s magic money-lending tree

Posted on: 29th July 2019

  Andrew George has joined his fellow Liberal Democrat Parliamentary campaign team to call for Cornwall to get a fair share of Government investment in its services and economy from the new Johnson Government. Andrew said, “This Government is led by a man who can’t tell truth from fiction. There’s going to be an almighty […]

He’s campaigning. Not governing. “No ifs. No buts”!

Posted on: 25th July 2019

The new PM, Johnson, isn’t governing. He’s campaigning for a General Election. “No ifs. No buts”. He can’t deliver a new Brexit deal. Parliament will avert his no deal plans. So he’s deployed top marketing strategists to test which form of words works best. He’s not interested in the substance of policy but how he […]

“Fake news” is Johnson’s route to No. 10

Posted on: 18th July 2019

Our next PM continues to fib his way to Downing Street… Mr Johnson has made a trade in making up stories about straight bananas and fictitious regulations he wants people to rail against. Last night he pleased Tory supporters by waving a kipper on stage, asking “Why does a kipper from the Isle of Man […]
